Interesting. In contrast just about a year ago Verio's web hosting assets were sold to EIG for a mere $36 million. Both companies were founded around the same time ~ 1996, and at some point at the top of the dot-com boom were the two dominant dedicated server providers out there.

Verio's big play was in the transit business; they ultimately became NTT America.
